Emerging Author Webinar: Barbara Bray
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 07:00:00 PM CDT - 09:00:00 PM CDT
Join the National Education Association, University of Toledo and author Barbara Bray for an exclusive webinar on “How to Personalize Learning”. Discover how to get started and go deeper by building a shared vision that supports personalized learning.
Personalized learning starts with the learner. Learning is tailored to the individual needs of each student, instead of by age or grade level. It is more than teaching to “one size fits all” or just moving to learner-centered learning and changing instruction. Personalized Learning takes a holistic view of the individual, skill levels, interests, strengths and challenges, and prior knowledge. Join this webinar and learn strategies to make learning meaningful and relevant and how to engage students so they are motivated to learn. This webinar will help practitioners discover how to get started and go deeper in building a shared vision that supports personalized learning, using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. 

Sponsored by the National Education Association, in collaboration with the University of Toledo/Corwin Press, this webinar is part of an Emerging Authors series,  hosted on NEA’s edCommunities. The series is designed to bring high-impact, emerging K-12 education authors to the national stage to share best practice thoughts and recommendations with educators.
